Re: [Czechlist] Help: sports gear terms
- Can't help with anything except kacenky - these are double bladed
strap on ice skates for small children - so it's just the bottom part
of the skate with the two blades, and two straps for fastening them
to your child's snowboots...
podvozek on a skateboard are the trucks, I think....looking at some
skateshops online, the deska is the board and then they describe the
podvozky. usually described as being 3" heavy duty or 5" stain
finished or something like that...maybe have a look at some english
loziska are the bearings, pvc lined would be the lining of the part
fo the wheel where the bearings are...
